New Stuff...

My buddy Davey Z had a thread going on his Facebook about Christina Lindberg from a film called THRILLER-A CRUEL PICTURE or THEY CALL HER ONE EYE.

Adrian Salmon -Brit artist supreme- did a great little sketch of her and this prompted me to follow suit-thus the above montage from said flick...;o)

Another piece of the Shrine

I got back from the store appearance at 2:30am-nice people at ALL THINGS FUN-I also contributed my third piece for the Aquaman Shrine: Black Manta (the art was actually in my usual "shades of gray" style but it's kinda hard to scan the tones)
-a tradition now after having done Aquaman and Mera for his sketchbook-check out their blog...

...and all of you Vokes Folks have a very Merry Ho-Ho!

Santo vs the Brainiac!

a couple of Mexican horror icons in their 1st face off-done as a Xmas gift...;o)

New (almost) Stuff...

...What I mean is that these are not new drawings-i have a stash of files of old con sketches and stuff that I'm slowly unloading on my blog.

The 1st is a villain called the Phantom-the older fans out there will recall him from the Fantastic Four comic years ago...

Below is also a con sketch - Two-Face,of course...

Then we have the Creeper-a fave Ditko character i hope to draw someday in a book...

this is an old pin up from the LIFE, UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING series i did but i just added a grey tone to it today-just because...;o)

Hammer & Beyond: 999 Challenge

What the heck am I talkin' about, you may ask?

Head on over to my good buddy (and fellow Hammer Films fanboy) Holger Haase's blog and read his newest entry...

could be fun...;o)

Let's see...

here's a VERY basic breakdown of 1st thoughts-this will need some expanding in the next few weeks before '09:

1- 9 western films (but only ones from the 90s-1990 to 1999- to keep a theme going here-westerns were virtually non existent by then-should be a challenge-lol )

2- 9 horror films (the same goes for these and the next couple film genres-this helps keep me more focused i think-besides, i haven't bothered with a whole lot of "new" films in the horror/comedy/sci fi/foreign genre-should be enlightening)

3- 9 comedies (same)

4- 9 Sci Fi films (same)

5- 9 foreign films (same)

6- 9 TV series on dvd (I'll keep it to one episode per show to be realistic -
i have at least nine box sets of various shows sitting amongst my dvd collection)

7- 9 books (i have more than nine on my "to read" shelf already-and just added more this Xmas!)

8- 9 albums/cds (again i want to try to listen to bands i haven't before-or at least paid little attention to-also between 1990 to 1999)

9- 9 chapters of a comic strip (i borrowed this idea from fellow blogger Davy Z) I'm not sure about what yet-something i haven't done before, i think-maybe semi autobiographical in nature?
as soon as i've picked the exact films,etc that will be on the list I'll update the entry...;o)

...wow-only 365 days to do all that...what shall i do with my free time-lol

Also keep an eye on my Blog list sidebar-it shows several blogs I'm following,including some that are in on the challenge!

That's All,Vokes!

The Super Mega Comic Fest - plus bonus art...

Hey strangers!

I've been remiss in adding any new content to the blog but stuff happens (or this last weekend,stuffing!) so here's a slight update...

I'll be appearing at the Super Mega Comic Fest Show in East Hanover,NJ this weekend ( Dec. 6-7) along with comic book folk Tommy Castillo,Murphy Anderson,Herb Trimpe and Joe Staton among others-there will also be many movie and tv celebs and a slew of wrestler types!

So if you're in the area come on over and see us...;o)

In addition here's a couple pieces i did for good buddy Davey Z...

...this Hulk/Spidey piece has a fun bit of trivia behind it- after finishing the linework i thought it might be fun to color it so i asked my daughter-i think she did a great job (all i added was a touch of wash/shading to it...;o)

...til next time...
That's All,Vokes...;o)
